Art for the public: a new form of public art emerged in European cities



During the ‘70s and ‘80s a new form of public art emerged in European cities and, more rarely, in North American cities. These works are revolutionary in their redefinition of the nature of public art: they address the ordinary citizen. They are intended to delight and inform people of all ages and all walks of life, to enrich the experience of everyday life and an understanding of a com mon heritage. These works are meaningful, but instead of cele brating military victories, statesmen or prominent individuals, they celebrate ordinary people. They are usually on a smaller scale than public art from the nineteenth century or modern abstract public art, and even when large in scale they are more accessible, designed to be touched, climbed on and manipulated.
